When NewsBusters' Mark Finkelstein had a bizarre freak-out over MSNBC's Cenk Uygur using the word "friggin'," -- calling it "profanity with malice aforethought" and a "vulgar new low" -- we noted that he remained silent over Sarah Palin's use of "WTF."
Meanwhile, another NewsBuster has weighed in on Palin's vulgarity, and not surprisingly, she gets a total pass.
In a Feb. 8 post, NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard writes:
It was also interesting to see Schultz use the phrase "Big f-in deal."
When former Alaska governor Sarah Palin recently referred to Barack Obama having several "WTF moments" in his State of the Union address, numerous MSNBC commentators thought it was childish of her despite the fact that she was making a hip pun with the President's oft-repeated "Winning the Future" line.
So "friggin'" is a "vulgar new low," while "WTF is a "hip pun." Got that?
Sheppard concludes: "As I've said for years, it takes a staggering amount of rationalizations to be a liberal these days." It appears it takes even more rationalization to be a Media Research Center employee.
